RapidBatch

Windows

 

RapidBatchRapidBATCH is a scripting language to create small Windows applications and automate tasks. RapidBatch has all the main features of a complete scripting tool such as file and registry manipultation, dialog boxes, 12 different Windows controls, GUI creation and other features like OS shut down or lock, programs can be controlled remotely, simulation of mouse-clicks and movements, multimedia files playback, documents and internet-urls can be called and opened. RapidBatch is similar to a basic-like language only for the code structure and the fundamentals of basic programming, the syntax instead is quite different. The language itself offers all the main instruments of a modern language such as iterations, user-definable procedures and functions, recoursive programming, dynamic variables, arrays with up to 9 sub-dimensions, include-files. As the language syntax is not a basic-like syntax learning RapidBatch may not be so fast for a basic programmer. Althought RapidBatch supports graphics management, it isn't so fast to be used for these kind of tasks. RapidBatch comes in two versions: Personal and Pro. The Personal version is free, but Pro version supports stand-alone EXEs, it includes a visual dialog designer and a usefull script debugger. Thanks John.

Can be a bit confusing when coming from a form of Basic, but one you spend a little time with it, it all starts clicking and you see that you can do quite a bit with RapidBATCH.

Has documentation, but the documentation can be a bit of a pain since it's an html framed page with no search feature.

I must also point out that the author has since dropped RapidBATCH into an open source project on sourceforge but neglected to upload any source codes. This was done back in 2011 and the author has since disappeared from the internet.

I do not know if you can still purchase RapidBATCH, but the original site is still up at:

There is still a small handful of users available to help you with your code if you need:

I found RapidBatch great for writing small utilities programs.
